ST. GEORGE — A 17-year-old St. George boy has been hospitalized with serious injuries after falling some 25 feet from the rooftop of a two-story house while helping his grandfather remove Christmas lights — something the teen does every year for his grandfather during the holidays.

“He’s my Clark Griswold,” the teen’s mother, Alana Bradbury, said of her son. “This kid loves Christmas. He looks forward to it every year.”

Her son, Jordan Evans, was with family members Monday helping to take down the Christmas lights adorning his grandfather’s home located on the east side of the Black Hill in St. George.

Evans, a senior at Snow Canyon High School, was near the edge of the roof just before 10 a.m. when he lost his balance and fell some 25 feet before plummeting onto the concrete slab below.
